Autumn 2023

We have had such a wonderful end to our Autumn term 2023 and are really looking forward to what 2024 has to bring!



We have been looking at addition and subtraction with 4 digit numbers and up to 2 exchanges. Multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100 and have now started to learn about prime numbers.


Continuing with our topic ‘Misty Mountain Sierra’, we have been reading the novel ‘The Explorer’ by Katherine Randell. We have explored lots of different literacy techniques and elements around this adventure story resulting in some fabulous work.


We have also become ethical informed citizens this term learning about Black History, Hinduism and taking part in Remembrance Day celebrations, where we made a poppy wreath using leaves collected during our forest school session.

Children in need/Trip


We had a lot of fun performing in our talent show for Children in Need. We didn’t like the auditions, we LOVED them ⭐️⭐️

The children also had a magical time at the Milleniuim theatre watching ‘Aladdin’

Here’s to a spectacular Spring term!

Misty Mountain Sierra

We launched our topic by venturing to Penwyllt with our very own mountain rescue leader.

We were lucky to have Morgan’s dad visit us and we learnt about mountain sports and avalanche survival.Trying the equipment for size.

Mountain music, rhythm, dance , drama and communication skills.

Drama, dance and movement to music - Creative Mountain work

Forest School - den building, based on our class novel The Explorer by Katherine Rundell

Well being Day

Well- being day, there's nothing like a cuppa and a biscuit and having a chat with friends

It’s the Rugby World Cup so we have a rugby player teaching us new skills and competitive rugby tactics.

We enjoyed our October Fest disco. Do you recognise these scary creatures?
